Is anyone having a problem with NFL Sunday Ticket? I'm getting the dreaded "searching for satellite" message on almost every channel.

My problem appears to be with HD channels only and not all of them. Even stranger, some of the HD channels I could not get yesterday, I'm able to get today (even though there is just a banner). We had some strong winds last week so I'm starting to wonder if my dish has fallen out of alignment.

I've looked at Sixto's mappings but can't seem to figure out what satellite/transponders the NFL ST channels are/were on but based on other HD channels I wasn't able to get, I think my main issues are with channels on D11. Below is a snapshot of signal strength taken this morning, what exactly is considered good, marginal, etc? Do these readings suggest an alignment issue?

Those are horrid signals. Every one of those should be high 80s+. My lowest currently with no rain is 88. The N/As are normal.

Are your others that bad? Keep in mind ones that are marked (s) will have a lot very low or 0, which is normal, there will be a few that stand out as a high number.

I do think you need an alignment.

Signal strength on the 101 are all in the 80's and 90's. However, signal strength on 103ca and cb run in the 30's to 50's. It would appear I've got less than optimal signal strength on all the mpeg4 channels.

With those numbers, it is amazing you are getting any HD at all. Dish needs alignment.
